Above all an amazing value at less than $10 a bottle. Spicy cherry nose. About 70% spicy with perfectly balanced brilliant cherries and obese powerful tannins.

Bright fruity blackberries and black cherries on the nose. Gritty sour currants on the palate. Finish is meh.

Cheery and tobacco flavors. Smooth with a long finish.

Decanted around 3 hours, changed from a flat murky wine into a smooth and concentrated, yet clean flavor. Nice oak and coffee nose with notes of tobacco and cherry. Cream and vanilla on the palette with strong notes of ripe cherry. Really long finish that is very pleasant, predominantly cherry with notes of cola, vanilla and cocoa. Great value, even though I paid closer to $12 for this bottle.

This is a standard issue at a tapas bar I frequent. A bold and healthy bodied wine. Simple and great with food as it doesn't compete.

An oaky, modern-style wine with a staunch mocha and vanilla influence, but the fruit is ripe and rich enough to handle it. Spicy and grainy on the nose, with vanilla and resin seeping through. The palate remains woody but is full of berry flavors, while the omnipresent barrel influence carries onto the rich, ripe finish.

The first act of dried spices and light, dusty red fruit aromas is honest and subdued. The palate brings good weight and lightly leafy, tomatoey accents to red cherry and raspberry flavors. Light, dry and a little stemmy on the finish. Standard but hinting at elegant.

Only slightly reedy and sharp on the nose. After that, the wine shows nice fruit and balance throughout. There are snappy cherry and raspberry flavors, and the finish offers proper finality in the form of light oak and cleansing acidity. Drink now for an easy taste of Rioja.

This sleek red shows racy flavors of cherry, licorice and vanilla, as well as leaf and cola accents, with gentle tannins and bright acidity. Drink now through 2012.

Medium red. Shy nose slowly opens to display redcurrant and dried cherry, along with subtle vanilla bean and tobacco qualities. Light, gently sweet red fruit flavors are silky and smooth, with no obvious tannins or rough edges. Understated and nicely balanced, with good finishing lift and clarity. Fans of old-school Rioja should give this a spin.
